  1. If you are asking if Thais heat their swimming pools and waste money in their eyes, I think you know the answer.... thais don't swim especially lap swimming...
  2. He won't make that mistake again...
  3. While police are justified for being criticized for many things, Thai citizens just don't take law and order seriously and unwilling to be a partner in it...11% of official tickets paid? They just don't care and the legal system has no backbone and not respected... heard only 10% of taxes are actually collected...falls in the same line and why should one wonder with such a dysfunctional gov in place of why they remain stuck in a 3rd world mentality and we still expect signals to work and barricades erected when bridges are removed....
  4. Taking off your shirt is only exposing yourself if you are a CM ex-pat since the majority of them have man boobs...😉
  5. If he just have had .2 of cocaine, he would only have gotten 15 years! the bigger question is when is he up for parole? what does it take to get a life sentence?
  6. Maybe they don't have cashier's checks in thailand? 😜
  7. Collecting herbs from the forest land they burned illegally previously? More to this story than just pissing off an elephant....
  8. Huay thung Thao is a reservoir costing 50b for non Thais... Can swim,eat, fish and ride bikes on a paved road around the lake.. there is also 700 year stadium but more for adult recreational activities... there is no western style municipal park with a complete children playground that I know of I truly wish there was...municipal city parks, green spaces and nature reserves are not part of urban planning in chiang mai...
  9. Wow did this thread get off topic..why can't you guys answer a simple question so I will try... a thai mix child can own land or a house and be in their name... up to the age of 20, in order to sell it, there must be a guardian for that child - usually a family adult member and that member must take it to court and the court will oversee the sale so the child is not cheated out of their property value... what i don't know is how much control the court has once the sale becomes liquid assets in the name of the child. Can the guardian cheat the child out of those funds w/o a third party watching out for the child's interests? In theory, that is what a guardian should do but reality they need to be monitored for integrity and honesty...
  10. Could have been a family dog....
  11. The students should be following the lead of gov officials and gov programs and not the other way around... very telling where the blame lies for driving in thailand.... what's next? Lemonade stands and bake cookie sales? one can applaud the kids but the problem is systemic and that is where the change needs to start... little league fundraising for a serious issue?
  12. Impulse...you don't compare tourist stats to where they reside...tourists are usually healthy and don't have the medical problems if one lives long enough will eventually become a statistic... pick tourists from from a foreign country and compare their death rate in America against American tourists in thailand...a good % of senior Americans are chronically sick and invalid unable to travel - should not be included in your tourist comparison... compare apples to apples...
  13. Don't agree that kids can learn on their own...some do need lessons and others do not...rate of learning and coordination vary immensely and it doesn't only apply to swimming... some kids need structure and motivation and I am a strong believer in performance testing... pool swimming is not the same as open water like a lake or ocean... a definition of a good swimmer should include survival swimming - minimum of 10 minutes treading water...where can be debated...
  14. Stealing money? He will be in and out of the system soon and a liability to the public... why no mention about the father?
  15. Drivers at fault for using their parking lights... more evidence of their general intelligence level...
